The Drive

Dubai is known for its gleaming skyscrapers of glass and steel and malls, one grander than the other. However, just a few minutes drive away from the city takes one to vistas serene. Amongst tall proud ochre-coloured dunes lies vast sabkhas (salt flats). While doing a recce for a shoot, my friend and I landed up in one of these sabkhas. I was in a modest sedan while my friend was in his pride and joy, a Dodge Ram - a vehicle that looked completely at home in the rugged environment.
